By Julie Morris
Junior Staff Writer
Television news commenta
tor and correspondent Sander
Vanocur held a question-answer
session with students at
the University School of Jour
nalism late Thursday after
noon. Vanocur, NBC's Washington
correspondent, told the group
that a television newsman
needs "an understanding of
the English language" and
"some intelligent skepticism"
to succeed in the television
news world.
The veteran newsman dis
cussed problems in interview
ing people before the cameras
and said, "I think it is diffi
cult to interview the President
of the United States because
he is a symbol, not a man."
Vanocur said that "the trou-

Kennedy s Impact
When questioned about the
late President Kennedy's his-

dous impact on young people.
He made it possible for a
young man to be listened to."
He added, "We're getting
very rapidly into the area
when we don't know Jobn F.
Kennedy, the man, from John
F. Kennedy, the myth."
Vanocur said the weekend
of Kennedy's assassination
was "one of the weekends
when you are very proud of
television. In the space of
three or four days we had to
assemble all the equipment
needed to cover an enormous
event (Kennedy's funeral)."
Press Relations
Comparing Kennedy's rela
tions with the press and Pres
ident Johnson's in this same
area, Vanocur commented,
"President Kennedy was very
shrewd. The basic difference
is that he knew when to leave
them (the press S alone."
"President Johnson is bard

Professors Discuss
Using Metric System
By Jan Itkin
Junior Staff Writer
The United States and other
English - speaking countries
are unique at least in their j
system of measurement.
In most parts of the world,
the metric system is the ac
cepted form of measurement.
An inch is comparable to 2.54
centimeters. The feasibility of
the United States changing
to the metric system is a ques
tion that comes up perennially.
Professors of mathematics,
chemistry and engineering at
the University all depart-
ments which use the metric
system were asked what
they thought of the system and
iter or not they thought

Dr. Edwin Halfar, chairman
of the department of mathe
matics, said that the metric
system is preferable to the
English system because it is
more unified. He said U would
eliminate confusion because
"the rest of the world is al
ready using It."
'It (the metric system)
much simpler svstem to
use," Halfar commented.
"Difficulty arises, however,
Sn that it would require the re
educating of almost an entire
population (the United States)
which does make a change
somewhat impractical.

Quiz Bowl
Quick recall of specific in-
1 formation meant the winning
j answer at the first Quiz
.Bowl matches of the 1965-66
season last night,
i "We're really encouraged to
see campus interest in Q n t z
, Bowl and are looking forward
to a good season," commented
Larry Johnson, chairman.
Johnson explained that this
year's Quiz Bowl differed from
last's in several respects.
There are approximately 100
teams competing this year,
for instance, which necessi
tated adding two matches
more an evening to bring the
total of matches a session to
eight. The large number of
teams means that the Univer
sity has the biggest student
participation in the Big Eight.
Also this year there will be
questions on music and art
using records of musical selec
tions and pictures of works
of art. In addition matches will
I be taped so that they can be

The tournament will con-

with teams matched with oth
er teams having the same
record as themselves.

are composed the week be

and Margie Nutzman.
Cummins explained t h a t
about 140 toss-ups and 70 boil -

but that only about a third
of them are used.

of the metric system in 1760
by the French Academy of
Science to erase the confusion
created by the more awkward
systems of measurement.
"There are, however, two
main disadvantages encount
ered in changing from one
system to another," he ex
plained. "One is the psycholo
gical disadvantage people
are used to thinking in terms
of inches and pounds not cent-
ana Kilograms.
Sarpkaya did believe that
eventually the United States
would use the metric system.
"It will slowly evolve," he
said. "It will take at least
a century.
"Tbe other disadvantage,"
be continued, "is industrial.
It would cost multi-millions
of dollars to change quickly."
Dr. Robert Larson, assist
ant professor of chemistry,
also mentioned the simplicity
of the metric system and the
problem of re-educating the
people if It would be adopted.
j Dr. Henry Holtzclaw, pro
fessor of chemistry, agreed
